I having looking around sub-sat system for probably 2 month before I decidedto buy the RM7300 last month from Good Guy. I have listen to Bose, Infinity,
JBL, Boston as well though not necessary from the same stores. There is no
comparison, with the same price range of 1000 dollar, RM73000 out-perform
the rest, especially the sub which really shake my foundation! The tweeters
on the sat and center were so... sweet. Hear no distortion with high volume, except when I put the microphone near my baby when he was crying which then
I can hear the auto-shut-off circuitry of the sat working to protect the tweeter :-)
In my opinion, Bose AM15 doesn't live up to the expectation with $1600 price
range, don't even mention the AM10.
Overall, I think this is the best value/performance sub-sat speakers around.
I will recommend to those who are looking for sub-sat system.

What else can I say but these speakers are awesome! Due to space constraints, I needed a sub/sat system, and looked at all sorts for a month or so. I auditioned Eosones, Infinitys, Energy, and a couple others, but the Polks sounded better to me. These speakers replaced my old Kenwood stock bookshelf speakers and there is no comparison. While I did upgrade to a Yamaha RX-V595 as well, I tried the Polks on the old Kenwood as well. While the RM-7300 did not sound as good with the Kenwood compared to the Yamaha, they still blew the old speakers out of the water. When hooked up to the Yamahaha, the Polks were incredible. CDs are sharp and very clean clean sounding, not the slightly muffled sound I am used to. Home Theater is also unbelievable - watching a Dolby Digital movie now reminds me of a normal movie theater. The PSW300 subwoofer is at times very overpowering, even when only at 1/2 volume, but it is like being hit with a hammer because it sounds so clean. No mush at all! All you bass freaks will love it. All speakers (including sub) are magnetically shielded, so I can place them anywhere now - my old speakers had limited placement due to not being shielded. Overall I give this system a solid 5, they sound great, look great, and can fit anywhere (maybe not the sub).

Just bought new Sony 36' Vega XBR TV with 5 changer Sony DVD changer. Went looking for receiver and speakers for overall Home Theater/stereo set. Bought Yamaha 995 receiver. Looked at Bose 15, JBL 125, Polk RM7300, NHT, Infinity, and Boston Acoustics. For the money and quality Polk was the best buy. Bose sound good at the demo, but are only good in home theater mode, not as stereo speakers. Bought Polk and loving them. Best investment and buy for my money. Trust me, Polk costs a bit more than JBL, NHT and Infinity, but in the long run are better buy than all, and cheaper than Bose.

I was all set to buy a Bose Lifestyle system, when I went to a real home audio store where I could listen to both systems side by side. I couldn't believe the difference in sound. Less money for better sound? There was no question. What I really like is listening to the THX intro to movies. It completely fills the room. I also bought a Yamaha Dolby Digital receiver. It's a great system.

It took my wife and I several months to decide on a set of speakers for our new home theater. We auditioned speakers from Klipsch, Atlantic Technology, Bose, Definitive Technology, Energy, Eosone, JBL, B & W, and Polk. Polk was one of the first systems we listened to and they were the ones we kept going back to. Nothing else we listened to (although most were very good, with one exception) could match up to the Polk's. The Polk RM 7300 IMHO are the best money can buy.
The RM 7300 are perfect for movies AND music. They perform great at low volume and beg for more when you crank up the power. The sub (with a built in 125 watt amp) literally shakes our entire house without sounding boomy! The satellites (all perfectly matched) have smooth, clean midrange and very crisp (but not harsh) highs. AC-3, DTS, Pro-Logic all sound absolutely wonderful. They reproduce music so well that they will make you want to listen to all your audio CDs, tapes, and LPs all over agian.

I highly recommend the RM 7300 without reservation. Listen to everything else, then listen to these.

I, like many other people who have sent in reviews had all but purchased a set of Bose Acoustimass 15's when a friend (who happened to work at a Polk dealership) suggested that I just stop by and listen to the Polk RM series before I made my purchase. Needless to say, I was awestruck! The difference was amazing! My wife, who suffers from self-proclaimed tone-deafness, and claims to net be able to tell the difference between CD and 8-track, heard the difference and urged my to buy the Polks! I ended up buying the RM7300 series and I am more than satisfied! I would recommend them to anyone in the market for a home theater satellite subwoofer system! I purchased the system in Fairbanks, but now that I am in Anchorage and have visited several Specialty Audio shops, I am even more pleased with my purchase. They sound better than any other system I have had the opportunity to hear! And as for capabilities, they can take every ounce of Power my Kenwood KRX-1000 can dish out, literally shake thinks off of the walls and all this without one ounce of distortion! I hope my neighbors like them!
Lastly I'd just like to say that I think the reason that Bose is such a well known system is that you can buy them anywhere -- Sam's Club, Sears, K-Mart, Wal-Mart...you name it! But the bottom line is, most of the better Audio Outlets don't even carry Bose if they carry quality equipment like KEF, Polk, Definitive Research, Paradigm, Acoustic Research, etc..............I wonder why?

I went to Circuit City to buy the Blose AM10's system - thank g-d I stumbled into the room with these set up - the 7300s were perfect in size and fabulous in in sound - when compared in price to the Blose they were about the same and came came with a powerful 125 watt powered sub (Blose is passive) - sound is great for both surround and music - perfect set when you don't have room for big speakers - still difficult giving up the Klipsch Fortes! Circuit City lists them for $1499 but was very quick to drop them to $999 and match their prior sale
The Infinity LMPDS (I think that is the #) also sounds pretty good - but the value of the Polk is soo much better

I was looking at the folowing 3 systems: Energy Take5, Polk RM7300 and the AR's Leading Edge. I found that Polk sounded the best for both music and movies. AR is good on higher ranges but did not perform to my expectations in the lower frequencies. I got a great deal from Lee's Audio/Video ($999 shipped to CA).

I compared many sub/sat systems and have found the Polk RM7300's to be the best satellite system for both home theater and music (especially dolby digital). Great highs, midrange, and a powerful sub for bass. I would highly recommend the Polks.
